Situated on a coastal ridge with sweeping views, Kākā Ridge Retreat is a two-room, 60 square metre cottage offering you privacy, tranquility and luxury. Boasting a bedroom, a living room, two bathrooms, decks on three sides, an outdoor bath and a pretty cottage garden, it is designed to provide you with the ultimate getaway.
The luxurious bedroom is French country chic with a super comfortable king bed and 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets to ensure you’re well rested. From your bedroom you have a stunning view of the sea – a 180 degree vista including near and far islands of the Hauraki Gulf.
Your living room looks across a gently sloping lawn directly at a huge stand of covenanted native bush. This is a bird lover’s paradise: tūī, kererū, kākā, ruru, pīwakawaka, kōtare, kākāriki and korimako visit our gardens. If you’re lucky at dusk you will see a flock of kākā flying overhead or ruru in the trees catching their puriri moth dinner. You will even have the best “loo with a view” in New Zealand. The second bathroom feels as though it’s totally immersed in the bush canopy.
This retro styled room is relaxingly comfortable and includes a small dining area plus fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave, and a disposable BBQ in lieu of a kitchen; everything you need for the delicious continental breakfast we provide, or to put together a simple meal. For dinner, we highly recommend you try one of the many wonderful local restaurants.
Access is via our driveway and shared parking area with a short walk past the main house. The cottage is completely separate and once there you can enjoy your peaceful seclusion with only birdsong to interrupt your thoughts. The cottage garden and a large native tree area create space and visual privacy from the main house.
Kākā Ridge Retreat truly does offer an exceptional escape experience. It would be hard to better this coastal getaway, its expansive views, country location or its ease of access to all the attractions of the Matakana area.
Property is non-smoking inside and outside.
